Our Provence villa is no ordinary vacation rental, holiday house, ferienhaus, somerhaus, or holiday accommodation.

We call it home... and you can, too. Yes, our place in Provence can be yours for a while.

Our home is an ideal gathering place for friends or family for vacations, reunions, anniversaries and birthdays... an idyllic retreat for writers, artists, or academics on sabbatical…

Whether you are just two – as we often are – or a group of 8-10, you will immediately feel at home in our lovingly furnished old village house in Carcès.

The French describe our décor as "sympa:" warm, rich colors, attractive furniture. And the beds do more than look great… they have great mattresses, too!

People refer to our house as a villa, but it's really a maison de village. What makes it so special is that it sits on the village perimeter. This means that the expanse of the countryside is out the back door while the hustle and bustle of a busy village – including tractors going to and from the vineyards – are out the front door.

Carcès is a working village, not a tourist-crowded monument. Within steps are boulangeries, small shops, cafes, (most surprisingly) a sophisticated contemporary art gallery, small markets, pharmacies, butchers, banks, the post office, five wineries (in town), a traditional Saturday market, and a charming village of around 3500 people who actually like having visitors in town.
